Answer: (3) 2 X
Area of a square = Side x Side
Then, the area of a square = X x X
= X2
Area of a square = Area of a triangle                    (Given in the question)
Area of a triangle = base x height / 2
Then, base x height = X2                 (According to the question)
X x height/2 = X2               (base – X  is given in the question)
Height = 2 x X2/X
Height = 2 X
Hence, the altitude of the triangle is 2 X.
